That's exactly it. I think mine is a Silverstar.

I upgraded to a Silverstar H4 (H4 is the correct/OEM type) and am pretty happy with it. Like Cindy, I end up over riding it sometimes but it's much better than the original standard or Halogen plus proper aiming is critical. I have mine slightly higher than the manuals recommend. Gives me a few extra feet of vision and doesn't quite cause the oncoming driver to nuke me back.

I also think the more critical issue is being seen from behind at night, rather than light in front of us. I worry more about some idiot/drunk slamming me from behind than seeing a rabbit/deer/critter/pet a little too late and swerving.
